Helping Our Clients Achieve Their Goals
We enjoy working with each client individually to match their treatment needs and desired changes with the method of treatment. We work with children, adolescents and adults. We specialize in working with LGBTQIA+ individuals, those living with the impact of single incident or complex PTSD, and addictions. We focus on resolving distressing and/or traumatic life experiences. These experiences often keep us stuck in behaviors that are baffling and even debilitating at times. Efforts to change often feel overwhelming and defeating. Through EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) and other focused strategies, we have assisted many clients with reprocessing the impact of ongoing or critical incident abuse, internalized homophobia, the trauma and abuse from growing up LGBTQIA+, as well as subjective forms of abuse. The goal of our therapeutic process is the implementation of new behavioral patterns and positive beliefs about one self. We believe the reprocessing of psychological distress provides individuals in depth healing and renewed emotional freedom.
We currently utilize EMDR in conjunction with other therapeutic strategies (e.g., art therapy, DBT, and MBCT) to help individuals reprocess psychological difficulties connected to addictive behaviors, traumatic life experiences, as well as grief/loss. We also utilize EMDR to assist clients in overcoming performance anxiety (e.g., athletic performance, test anxiety). In addition, we also leverage an addiction recovery model to treat eating disorders, gambling addictions, substance abuse, and other behavioral addictions.
We work with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. Our treatment specialization includes:
- Trauma Recovery

QUEST is Taking Safety Precautions During the COVID-19 Pandemic
QUEST Counseling and Consultation Center is currently offering a limited amount of in-person counseling, in addition to offering telehealth counseling. Typically, insurance providers will not cover the cost of telehealth counseling; but most insurance companies have decided to make an exception due to the pandemic. You can contact your insurance company to confirm coverage; or you can call QUEST at (608) 567-4465 and speak with our administrative assistant.
You and your therapist will decide whether in-person counseling or telehealth counseling is best--- depending on your counseling goals and vaccination status. If you and your therapist agree that in-person counseling is best, rest assured that QUEST is doing all we can to ensure a safe environment for our clients. Our practices reflect recommendations by both the CDC and the American Psychological Association. Some of these key practices include:
Clients - Clients who have not been vaccinated are required to wear masks in our waiting room. You and your therapist will decide if masks will be worn during your counseling session.
Therapists - All QUEST therapists have been fully vaccinated. In addition, all therapists are required to wear masks in common areas and observe safe distancing. You and your therapist will decide if masks will be worn during the counseling session, if you meet in person.
Reception and Therapy Offices – Our therapist offices are disinfected on a daily basis, arranged to promote safe distancing, and contain AHAM-verified air purifiers.
